World Music Features Baaba Maal

We’re so familiar with many of the major African names, from Youssou N’Dour to Thomas Mapfumo, it’s easy to forget that a whole other generation is rapidly coming of age behind them.

The trio of Moreno Veloso, Alexandre Kassin, and Domenico Lancelloti has just completed a trilogy of albums (each appended with +2) where the band name changes as each member takes his turn writing music and overseeing the production process. No matter who is charge, this is one of the edgiest outfits on the Brazilian music scene.
